"Stop looking! This is the best White Chocolate Macadamia Cookie you will find! As a volunteer field editor I have tried many cookie recipes. This is a keeper. My recommendation is to double the recipe and make the cookies a little larger. Also, be certain to only use slightly softened butter. As with all my cookies, I made the dough then let it chill in the fridge for an hour. This will guarantee super soft cookies that are loaded with nuts and chips!"

"Another blast from the past. I am not one to bake, but on a rainy day in Tampa, I decided to go for it.. and these cookies are SO easy, so good that as a volunteer field editor I would recommend them and will definitely make them again.. but I won't wait until it rains to do so!!"

"not sure what happened here. I used shortening instead of butter and these cookies were a big flop. . not only did they stick to pan but they were very thin. didn't make the yielded amount either. I think it should have called for more flour is my guess. disappointed because the ingredients are expensive."

"I got 28 cookies out of this with a 1" cookie scoop. Cookies were very good. I didn't have white chocolate baking chips so I made my own out of a Ghirardelli white chocolate baking bar, same thing I guess."

"4 1/2 dozen is 54 cookies no way it made that many..... possibly half of that using a small teaspoon. Substituted macadamias for slivered almonds and still tasted yummy... not sure what Mrs Jepson is on about as there is no almond extract in the recipe."

"I made these last night and they turned out pretty good. The recipe DEFINITELY doesn't make the amount stated as was previously stated. All in all they were pretty good, but i will probably look for other recipes to try for these cookies"

"My husband is the "cookie monster" but he only eats ones he really really likes. These are a big hit. He likes them cooked 11 minutes so they are more crispy while the rest of the family likes them cooked 8 minutes for a softer cookie. Thanks for the great recipe! Too bad macadamia nuts are so expensive."

"Light and just the right amount crispiness. I did reduce the chips to 1/2 C. Seemed too sweet with the 1 cup. I left big chunks of nuts, too, which was very appealing. Excellent recipe"
